Hey there Future Horror Model!
We're going to help you get ready for your next Horror photoshoot and cover some of the most important things you'll need to consider.
Don't worry! We'll keep it short so you can get right back to prepping.
Be ready for anything! Your photoshoot might involve fake blood, special effects makeup (SFX), dead bugs… the list goes on and on. It's super important to be prepared for whatever your photographer throws at you.
Practice showing off negative emotions for your shoot. If you're going to pose as a sad clown, try frowning in the mirror and looking deranged. If you're playing a maniac, practice an evil smile! There are so many different characters and emotions that the most important thing is: modeling is like acting. The best models know their character.
Look up inspiration poses online! Are you channeling your inner zombie or perhaps you're imagining what it would be like to be a vampire? This will help you imagine what kind of poses would best fit each character. Would they be posed or natural? sexy? high fashion, grungy, creepy, monstrous, or perhaps funny?
Come clean and ready to get dirty Take a shower and come with a clean freshly washed face! This makes it so much easier for the SFX artist! (if you are doing your own makeup do it beforehand if you want but bring essentials with you!)
Bring an outfit you don't care about It is best to bring an outfit you don't care about because there is always a chance during horror photoshoots that they can get dirty. If you don't have anything head to a thrift store and grab something!
From these tips, you can see that horror photoshoots are a lot of fun but they also require a lot of preparation.
Lastly remember, no matter how many times you have done a horror shoot before it is always important to go in with an open mind. The best part of any shoot is the photographer’s and model's creativity so let your imagination run wild!
